1942 copy of Print Magazine with a Picture Stories from the Bible comic bound inside.


1943 copy of Print Magazine with an article by Max Gaines telling the history of comics from a 1943 perspective.



A slipcase that included the two issues.

I'd never seen the #1, and it's the artwork on the #2 that looks familiar. I need to go back and look. It was a company that's been selling comics since the 70's and they have a stockpile of comics that are in storage. They periodically pull unusual stuff out of storage to restock their store. It was probably lower grade. Or I could just be imagining it. I'm reasonably sure I'd seen it in their store among some really oddball Golden age stuff that was in low grade (chunks missing etc.). I probably paid attention to it because it was in better shape than anything else in the beat up box.

@X51 Not as cool as someone named Bob Denver buying a Bob Denver comic, but I once sold an Atari to Wil Wheaton on e-bay.

That's cool. Did you tell him he was horrible on Star Trek?

It was "the" Bob Denver who bought it (Gilligan). I think he bought a Dobie Gillis comic because he was on that TV show too.

@X51 Ah, that's even cooler that it was "the" Bob Denver.

As far as Wheaton & Trek? Nah, I'd rather avoid that. 😏

I did attach an "Axis of Anarchy" logo to the package, though. A reference to his character on "The Guild" web series.

I once had Jim Valentino buy a VG-ish Jimmy Olsen #134 from me...for $8.

Of course, this was in 2002 or thereabouts, but it's worth a bit more. I thought it was pretty neat.

That's cool too. I've never sold anything to a celebrity or pseudo-celebrity, but I've bought things from creators that mean a little more to me for that reason. Especially, if they are very hard to find otherwise. I run a message board and I always thought it was strange that comic creators would actually go out of their way to contact me. They care how their work is presented or promoted online.

Yeah, it was neat. I asked him "are you the Shadowhawk Jim Valentino?" He said yes. I enjoyed Shadowhawk when it was new.

I imagine it wouldn't hold up today.

I attended Vermont Comic Con recently, and met Cliff Rathburn (Walking Dead colorist, among other things)... I generally don't commission art (no wallspace, no good way to store it), but really enjoy his work and found him really interesting to talk to. I decided to have him do something for me, and the only input I gave him was that I wanted a "Rick" (Walking Dead)... This is what he handed me the next morning:




I was blown away - I loved how it turned out.

I also met Rusty Gilligan, who was a real character... he was doing $10 charity commission sketches... I asked him for a Jay and Silent Bob, and this was the result:




It was a pretty small con, but it was really nice to have space to move around in, and a low enough noise level that I could have extended conversations with a number of artists and writers... after my first San Diego Comic Con experience this year, it was a great experience, and reminded me why I will probably not go to a big con again

Love the photo. You can tell even at that age, none of his cheese has slid off his cracker.

Another random cool thing I recently acquired - an Alex Cormack commissioned cover of his now-a-big-hit Sink #1... he's a local, and I've often been able to hang out and talk to him and have him sign stuff... he's a really great guy, with a lot of talent. I really love his work, and particularly recommend the series "I Play the Bad Guy" and "Future Proof."

Also, after reading the first issue of Sink, I can't wait for more... I have no idea what the hell is going on in it, but it's fantastic.

Ok. I GUESS that's cool. 😄

Congratulations, @AndyRexia.

I'm guessing "Logan" is no coincidence?

Got two more items for my collection! The first one was a Street Fighter Zero 3 Double Upper/Vampire Chronicles: The Chaos Tower value pack, which I bought for the former. More on that who want to hear it.

And this one arrived today while I was gone. It is in great shape for a 21 year old magazine, and both comes in its original bag as well as its original bonus items. I plan to have it framed next year.

Also, I am using the images the seller used. Mine is packed away.

Wanna bet that the Loch Ness Monster added the "1" to the bid so nobody knew he was bidding on it?
